Great venue, great people...good times!! Without doubt Cott farm really is a little diamond hidden away in the heart of the Somerset countryside. We love its character and warm atmosphere and Ollie and Becca really go the extra mile to deliver a special day. Huge thumbs up and can't recommend it enough!

From start to finish Becca and Ollie could not have been more attentive and helpful. The venue is beautiful and the day ran like clockwork. I want to do it all again!

Such a magical venue
Attended friend's daughter's wedding yesterday and such a magical venue full of rustic charm. Hosts and staff were lovely and accommodating and even offered sun cream due to weather😀. Watching pizzas being cooked outside in the evening just added to the charm of this venue as we sat under sails looking out at the beautiful scenery reflecting on what a fabulous day it was.

The best day of our lives
Having our venue as the Barn at Cott farm was the best day of our lives. From start to finish, Becca and Ollie were the most amazing hosts that we could of asked for and nothing was ever too much trouble. All of the food was beautiful, definitely recommend the stone baked pizzas that everyone went crazy for. The venue and views were incredible and it will always leave a special mark in our lives from the first day of married life. The best place we could of ever dreamt of. Becca and Ollie, you were literally the best and we can’t thank you both enough.

FAQ

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

Well, I'm biased, but I'd have to say it was our own wedding! My now husband renovated an old barn on his family's farm to use for our wedding reception and that's how The Barn at Cott Farm became a wedding venue.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Work closely with your venue's wedding coordinator and don't try to do everything yourselves. We offer a balance, with us doing the 'boring bits', such as hiring equipment, leaving you to do the fun bits, like flowers.

What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?

Ooo, that's a good one. Every wedding we've hosted has featured many beautiful, personal touches. We've had a brass band playing the bride and groom up the aisle to Beyonce's 'Crazy in Love', handmade woollen poms-poms, homemade wedding cakes (including our favourite ever cake), brides and grooms singing live, and tables decorated with greenery foraged from the local hedgerows. I couldn't possibly pick a favourite, but let's just say if I was getting married again, my wedding would more than likely feature a brass band, or a hot air balloon. Or both.

Describe your venue in 5 adjectives.

Comfortable. Informal. Pretty. Rural... Amazing!

Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?

We're surrounded by gorgeous countryside, so couples and their photographers take their pick from many fab views.

Have you had any celebrity guest or wedding at your venue?

Not exactly. But watch this space...

What’s your favourite canapé?

Probably our chef's honey and mustard glazed pork sausages. Though I love anything bite sized when drinking bubbly!

What’s your favourite midnight treat?

Pizza.

What is your venue's most unique feature?

Probably our location. Though our outdoor kitchen with wood fired pizza oven is much-admired, and so are our bell tents because we furnish them with proper king-sized beds and mattresses (no easy feat when they are in the middle of the camping field!).

What part of your business are you most proud of?

Our team. My husband, Ollie, and I are very much involved throughout each couple's journey from viewing the venue through to clearing away with couples on the Sunday. However, without our fab team of catering and bar staff and our chef, Cott Farm weddings wouldn't be known for great food and service.
